Don't you think it's possible that FF just happens to be the outlet where he gets to express those things? He certainly has plenty of other musical outlets so he doesn't have to (or want to) put all of his creative juice into just Foo Fighters.
You know, if people didn't have emotional relationships with ballads, they wouldn't sell the way they do. Maybe Grohl is actually just a normal human being like the rest of us.
Nobodies saying Daves not a great guy. He definitely seems very humbled and greatful for the opportunities he's been given. I just think F.F have been putting out some underwhelming music for quite some time. People can have an emotional connection with ballads all they want, learning to walk again will still be an overplayed shitty song.
